About 10 years ago, I started working with a man who gave up something for Lent every year. Big things, like smoking, potato chips, bread, pizza and pasta of which he ate copious amounts of all those things. (And he never had a weight problem other than being too thin!) I admired his strength and will power. He never waivered in his conviction to follow the rules of Lent. It astonished me.
He died a handful of years ago and now, in honor of him, I have given up something for Lent every year. One year it was soda, another year cheese but this year, I’m needing suggestions of what to do. I’ve given up soda for good, I’m on a no sugar kick right now so giving up desserts is out, I don’t eat that much meat and I don’t smoke. I was thinking of bread, but to what extent? Would that mean no, pizza, no hamburgers and no veggie or chicken burgers?
I’m taking all suggestions of what you think I should give up for the next 44 days. I’ll take all into consideration so hit me up in the comments my friends.
